Fulfilling Answers

“That is the ultimate point of creative visualization—to make every moment of our lives a moment of wondrous creation, in which we are just naturally choosing the best, the most beautiful, the most fulfilling lives we can imagine.”  Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization

This lovely quotation from Shakti says it all.  If we visualize, and we take care to stay positive in our visualizations, we will understand the heart of the law of attraction.  “[T]he best, the most beautiful, the most fulfilling”—yes!

Do we have trouble keeping our minds uplifted?  This can often come when we are obsessing about something that we fear.  If we deliberately clear our minds, and deliberately develop a free-flowing thought pattern, the Answer to our problems will come—and soon.  If we just go over and over the same set of facts, when we don’t have all the facts, we will stew in our own juices.

The best way to live is to put problems on the back burner.  This from Richard Carlson.   We can make a deliberate decision to let the matter rest for now.

We will be surprised as how quickly the most fulfilling Answer will come.


Daydreaming for Manifestation

“You may take a relatively short time or quite a few minutes to imagine. . .—whatever feels best to you.  Have fun with it.  It should be a thoroughly enjoyable experience, like a child daydreaming about what he wants for his birthday.”  Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization

When we daydream, we relax and often go into the alpha mode.  And this makes things happen more readily, according to Jose Silva of the Silva Mind Control Method.  When we muse about what we want, in a contented, peaceful frame of mind, we are letting our heart rule our head.  And our heart knows better than our head what is really going to be best for us.  Letting the heart rule, and going into alpha mode, are two very creative ways of invoking the law of attraction, I have found.

I am at my most creative when giving my thoughts, my relaxed thoughts, free rein.  Sometimes I feel more inspired, because thoughts just come to me, new thoughts, ideas that have never occurred before.  All of us may be getting some help from the Other Side at such times.  Who knows what angels may be whispering in our ear?

Watch for relaxation when attempting to plan for the future, especially for future wants via manifestation.  If we tighten up, we won’t be able to access creativity, and we may short-circuit our connection to the Universe.

Relax and let the images flow, whether through mental pictures or a feeling sense.

Our cooperation with the law of attraction encourages us to do those things that work.  And relaxation when musing about the future does work.

Solution Is with the Problem—in Stillness

“It is especially good to do creative visualization at night just before sleeping, or in the morning just after awakening, because at those times the mind and body are already deeply relaxed and receptive.  You might like to do it while lying in bed, but if you tend to fall asleep, it’s best to sit up on the edge of the bed or in a chair in a comfortable position, with your spine straight and balanced.  Having your spine straight helps the energy flow and makes it easier to get a deep alpha wave pattern.”  Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization

Just this morning I awoke with a start, thought it was time to get up because the clock radio had clicked on.  But it was all a dream.  So I just lay in bed for a long while, unable to go back to sleep.  I thought about my life in deep reflection, visualizing solutions with problems.

A Course in Miracles says that the solution is always with the problem.  We are, though, often too blind to see the solution, and for this we need to be still, be quiet.  Early morning times work well for this.

Soon I had the solution to a problem that had bedeviled me for a while, two weeks.  I knew that God had spoken to me, for I had the solution just as I was realizing the problem even existed.

Use times of stillness for contemplating our lives.  We will find answers, and if we are listening often enough, our lives will smooth out immeasurably.

Happiness through Love

“You have to be happy first, and give happiness, to receive happy things!  It can’t happen any other way, because whatever you want to receive in life, you must give first!  You are in command of your feelings, you are in command of your love, and the force of love will give back to you whatever you give out.”  Rhonda Byrne

“We love him, because he first loved us.”  1 John 4:19 (KJV)

In the second quotation, from 1 John, the “him” is God.  “We love him, because he first loved us.”

We love others in the same way, because God first loved us.  He has taught us how to love, and when we are enthralled with that particular sense of Love that emanates from God Himself, we will be happy.  Love makes happy.

When we are feeling down, we can uplift our affect by thinking, just thinking, of those things we love.  The change is immediate.  When we move into a mellow feeling, God’s love is pouring down upon our heads.  And happiness follows.

If we don’t have a sense of love enthralling us, we often won’t feel happy.

It is just that simple.  It is said, “Love makes the world go ‘round.’”  And indeed it does.

Rhonda Byrne’s book, The Secret, recommends mood shifters, having a mental list of things that brighten our day, and these things are the things that we love.  If one doesn’t work for us at a given time, we can shift to another until we do find the magic elixir.

Go within, smile inwardly at those things we love, and the happiness that has eluded us will return.

Cheerful & Happy

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.”  Martha Washington (Mrs. George Washington)

“The better you feel, the better life gets.”  Rhonda Byrne

Martha Washington knew what she was talking about.  And our dispositions ARE amenable to our will.  When we determine to raise our mood, we will do just that.  Our will acts in our lives to make for better things.

Raising our mood by an act of will does not, of course, always happen right away.  We may need to go within, to commune with our inner nature, God Himself, to effect change.  But change will come when we are determined.

Determination is the great motivator.

Inviting a Good Day

“There is clearly a domino effect that takes place—one minute of positive feeling leads to another and then another and so on.

“The same domino effect can apply to negative feelings, which is precisely why you never want to dwell on negative feelings.  As you think about how bad you feel, and as you focus attention on that feeling, you are in effect asking for more of the same.  If you want to feel good you must learn to detect and then follow your good feelings.”  Richard Carlson

I have learned that if I stay active, engaged with my day and the people in it, plus my work, I am much, much happier.  The sense of ennui that begins my day falls away quickly.  If I don’t dwell on that ennui.

My husband says that most people start their day on a low note, having trouble waking up, taking time to get “into” the day.  I have been chastising myself for not being a “lark,” and maybe that is just a result of biorhythms over which I have no control.  Many of us may be in the same boat.

But I do have control over how the day develops.  I can let the feeling ennui “rest lightly on my mind.”  I can rise above it.  I can spend time with God.  Talking to myself when ennui threatens to engulf me is a potent way to assuage the bad feeling.  And then, with the first new good feeling, more are prompted, by the law of attraction, to come.

Invite the good times with everything that we have in us.  Our lowered affect helps nobody, something that Rhonda Byrne has said in different words.  Our joy/happiness, on the other hand, blesses the world, including our little place in it.

World Is Exact

“It has been said, ‘The world may not be just, but it is exact.’  This means that what you get is precisely what you expect and believe you will get.  If you are in a profession you ‘know’ is hard to make money in, and you say, ‘Not many people make money in my field,’ you will create that as a fact for yourself.  You are holding a certain view of reality, and that will be your experience, not only of your career, but also of others you meet in that field.  All you need do is alter what you expect to happen, and you will experience a different world.”  Sanaya Roman

I think that the world is both just and exact, though it is not always fair in the meaning of the word as we understand fairness.  We are learning all the time, and this is something that we tend to forget.  This is what makes the world just, in that we are learning those things that will take us back to God and a better future—IF we turn within to determine our next move.  If we look to the world for what we ought to do, we may follow the wrong model, and then indeed the world does not seem just.

The world is also exact, though this law of attraction is just now taking hold.  Most of us still don’t know about this most important law, and others would scoff at it if told that it is the truth.  But truth it is, and we will walk a smooth road if we take heed.

Our expectations determine the course of our future.  Our expectations thus will either bless us or curse us.

The choice is ours.  Let’s make it a choice for blessings.
